Has anyone out there thought about the possibility of building a Mac 
Mini cluster? I can imagine that for certain applications, that don't  
do much in the way of communicating, it could be a cheap option. They 
couldn't require too much in the way of energy, and you can probably 
stack 50 on a 2m x 1m desk.

The idea reminds me a bit of people that build Sony Playstation 
clusters, except Mac mini is the real deal. OS X under the hood. Hard 
disk. You name it.

Just an idea,
